Felix's Story...
My name is Felix and i am a big lovebug and goofball Boxer boy. I am at best guess around 4 years old and was originally rescued in Puerto Rico. I am grateful, playful and happy and full of affection. Did I mention goofy? I am a Boxer after all! When I was rescued the veterinarians found I had a mast cell tumor, the tumor was removed with clear margins and I was treated with chemo for 12 weeks. I am happy to say I have recovered well and look forward to enjoying each day. I also have impaired vision in my left eye so will need someone who will be aware of this. Because of this history I am considered a special needs adoption. There is always the chance I could develop more tumors in the future or need extra veterinary care. Do you love my breed? Are you willing to take a chance on love? Have the resources and commitment to take care of any veterinary needs that may come up in my future? Because I am an adult rescue and not much is known about my past I am looking for a family with kids 10 years and older. Maybe you are the right human for me! Felix can be bossy with other dogs here at the shelter so would do best in a single dog household.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Felix, a Gloucester Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer for sale in Gloucester, or seeking a Boxer dog from a breeder in Gloucester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gloucester already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Gloucester breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer breeders who help with Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gloucester paves the way for another one to be saved.
